Fencer’s ‘duel’ role  By Mark Barden   29 March 2007Jon Willis knows a bit about fences because of his job at the Stockport branch of DIY giants B&Q.  

But he knows an awful lot more about fencing, and has his sights set on epee success at the 2012 London Olympics.  

The 26-year-old recently became the first British fencer to win a World Cup event since 1981 at the Heidenheimer Pokal in Germany.

How to face top fencers without crying: Canadian Women’s Epee Nationals 2006-07

The day was here. I was up at 5:55 am because the check-in for women’s epee was at 8:00 a.m. and, after having booked at the hotel recommended closest by the Canadian Fencing Federation; the CFF then changed the venue. But, not to worry, we were told, because the hotel was running two shuttles to the sports venue, one at 7:00 am and one at 7:30 am. Linda and I thought, since this was my first nationals, we would go at 7:00 am and have a lot of time to change and get ready. 7:00 am, the van pulls up, and the driver asks me, “are you going to the sports arena?” I nod and he grabs my bag. At this point a guy in his 50’s with a beard says, “put her bag down.” What? We both turn to look at him. “This van is for CFF referees only.” The driver looks puzzled and says he has heard nothing about that and after a brief argument heads inside coming back with out the CFF fax which says that in the first van CFF refs should be given first spots but all others can be given to athletes
